I wanted to upgrade from my ltd m-100 its got the FR and everything its just not that good of a guitar and found this its a Schecter C-1 FR http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-?sku=518491
and i just found this its a Jackson MG Series DXMG Dinky
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Jackson-DXMB-X-Electric-Guitar?sku=512239
it costs another $90 so is it that much better and does anyone have one of these or used one of these that could give me some suggestions?

Jackson = smooth thin neck. Schechter = kind of fat and bulky neck-wise. I also prefer the look of Jacksons, but then again I'm a Jackson fanboy (and proud of it) so meh.

If you like fat c necks, Schechter would be better for you.

I have a Jackson DXMG Dinky... oh my lord...its great... fast neck... and not on purpose i'ved dropped it and with it being a double locking tremolo... youd think it'd slip a little outta tune.. nope didn't it was still in perfect pitch..... the only thing is if its your first Double Locking tremolo.. find someone who knows how to set one up and have them show you... its kinda confusing the first time if you dont know what your doing but yeah...

its a great guitar for its price... so worth it.. I run it thru a Fender Fm212R and a Digitech Rp150... it sounds great its great for metal, blues, and anything clean... it sounds great... and also its a great Shredders guitar...
